Wien Modern

Wien Modern

General Information

Year of Foundation:  1988

 

Wien Modern is an annual festival focused on new music. It was founded in 1988 by the then acting director of the Viennese State Opera in order to provide contemporary music in Vienna with its own platform. The festival consists of composer portraits as well as thematic focal points and attempts to bring diverse artistic forms and categories together. Aside from concerts, the festival also offers workshops and discussion forums in their programme. Special features of the festival are the focus on music education and communication as well as the integration of a broader audience. The diversity of the target audiences are mirrored in the event locations, which include famous classical music establishments like the Konzerthaus and the Musikverein as well as locations like Alte Schmiede, the Odeon or the Dschungel-Theater in Vienna. Wien Modern has worked with famous ensembles such as the Viennese Philharmonic, the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Klangforum Wien.
